Guns, Guns Everywhere

I’m watching these debates that have taken place over the last couple of days in the Senate Chamber (& over the last several years) and I still wonder when will the cooler heads prevail?

The Senate is supposed to be the “more mature” chamber, but it looks like this is no longer the case.

The Gun Legislation is a bad deal. I don’t know if this will make one iota of a difference in the landscape of the safety in Texas; it doesn’t seem to have so far with the CHL license.

From a practical point of view, I wonder what is going to happen when patrons of business establishments (of all kinds) will do when they start losing business because people start walking for the door when they notice gun totters enter a business.

I am not going to sit in a crowded restaurant with some yahoo who has a gun strapped to his belt (or shoulder) with my family. I am going to calmly get up and exit the establishment and never return until the owner recognizes that he has a business problem and does something about it.

I call on every right thinking Texan to let the businesses where they conduct their lives to know how they feel about guns in their surroundings.

I have been a lifelong hunter and gun owner and have always known there are some out there that will stretch the beliefs as far as they can chunk them. Nobody in their right mind sees a problem here needing a solutionone should spend a little time considering why the Senate Members think this is the solution. If they are spending their day being threatened by their surroundings, they have not been doing the job we sent them to Austin to do.
